Time flies by super-fast doesn’t it? Feels like it was only yesterday that I gave birth to my first child and now I have kidS! That’s plural!
Chempedak turned four a few weeks ago. She’s just an amazingly happy child, always cheerful and constantly with a smile on her face. Sometimes I think she walks around with rainbows and unicorns floating around her.
Celebrating her fourth birthday at school 🙂
How is she adapting with a baby Pomelo in the family, you might wonder? Masha Allah, she has taken on the big sister role amazingly well. She LOVES her baby brother to bits and is just so proud of him even if he does nothing but sits there drooling.
“My baby,” she’d tell people in the lift who are looking or cooing at him.
“Ihsan, this is a whale,” says Chemps as she reads to him a book.
Yes, he’s wearing pink. That’s how we roll 😛
She used to sing a tune from her favourite cartoon series My Little Pony but she tweaked it so that it goes “My baby brother, best friends forever”. Sweetest big sister ever!
Pomelo, will be 10 months next week and just as how his sister is doting on him, he loves her just as much. It used to be that Chemps was the only one who could make him burst out giggling with laughter (but he has since developed a better sense of humour, heheh). His sister would be doing the silliest of things (like pretending to eat his chubby hands) and that’s enough to make him laugh out loud.
He’s super active, crawling and climbing everywhere. Sometimes I run out of steam just trying to keep up with him. He can pull himself up to a stand and walk sideways if supported but can’t do it on his own yet. Most recently, the hubs taught him how to clap his hands and Pomelo is just so amused by his new set of skills. Two days ago, he suddenly woke up at 3am, sat on the bed, and started grinning and clapping his hands. If I wasn’t so sleepy I would’ve been spooked out of my wits.
My little Pomelo *looove*
Oh! And yesterday he waved “bye-bye” for the first time! Hahahah… yeah.. I know… it’s a mom thing. Little thrills of life *grin*
Jambu (haahahaha he’s gonna kill me!) is extremely busy too nowadays. He’s juggling life as a husband, a daddy, an employee and a student all at one go. I think things can get pretty overwhelming for him too but amazingly, he manages to be there to help out whenever he can and comfort this little wifey of his whenever I feel out of sorts. Much love my darling!!
As for me, well, there’s just wayyy too much that I’ve been doing, it’s definitely gonna take up more than a quarter of this post to update you on my going-ons! Haha! So, till I scribble my thoughts again, toodles!
